As a journalist, you are constantly writing stories to get  people’s   attention. Your boss recently asked you to take things to the political    sector.

You have been tasked to write an article to address the  four amendments   that you feel have the most significance on the criminal justice  system.

You must include an outline of one landmark case to each  of the amendments   you choose to write about. Find two with which you agree and  explain why the   ruling is solid from a legal reasoning perspective. Find two  with which you   would have ruled opposite of that decision rendered by the Court.  Be sure to   offer a legal rationale or reasoning (no opinion) for why the Court  got it   wrong.

Make  sure you are clear that these rulings are based on a legal principle   and not the  facts of the case. Example: Roe v.  Wade was not an   abortion case, it was about privacy, and the fact that there  was a pregnancy   is  completely secondary. In reality, the pregnant woman,  Norma McCorvey, who    brought Roe, could not possibly have  benefited from the case because   she had given birth long before the case arrived in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Your article must be a minimum of two pages in  length.
